Online workshop to focus on writing for The Conversation

Since Brock University joined The Conversation Canada five years ago, more than 81 faculty members have published 222 articles garnering more than 3.1 million reads.

In an effort to introduce more Brock faculty to writing for The Conversation, University Marketing and Communications and the Office of Research Services are hosting the online publication’s Editor-in-Chief, Scott White, for a workshop on Wednesday, March 2. The session will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Microsoft Teams.

The Conversation Canada is a daily independent online publication, delivering analysis and explanatory journalism from the academic and research community directly to the public.

The website is a not-for-profit collaboration, which Brock University is a partner in, where professional editors work directly with academics and researchers to publish articles for a wide audience. The Conversation provides the content to a wide range of media outlets for no charge.

During the workshop, White will explain the mission of The Conversation Canada, offer some background on how it helps academics with knowledge mobilization and give some tips on how to pitch a great story idea.

This is an interactive workshop where participants are encouraged to bring story ideas to discuss.

Anyone interested in taking part is asked to email Dan Dakin at or Cathy Majtenyi at to be added to the virtual event meeting.
